ORLAN  EVA Space Suit inner Cooling Garment

This is a REAL piece of space history

ORLAN EVA Space Suit inner Cooling Suit

    This Water-Cooled Insulation Garment is worn underneath the ORLAN EVA Space Suit during space walks. It is a model KVO-M, size 4, Serial No. 10310076.
It is the latest version of the KVO suit.
"M" in Russian stands for modernizirovannii or modernized. 

    It is a one-piece hooded jumpsuit with long sleeves comprising a network of plastic tubes through a knotted net garment with zipper front and stirrups.

It was used by several cosmonauts for
training at the the Russian Space Agency.

Polyvinylcloride tubing strung through this garment facilitated thermal regulation using a glycol mixture. The coolant was routed back though a heat exchanger in the life support assembly in the rear of the ORLAN suit.

 The garment does its cooling by passing cool water through plastic tubes interwoven throughout the suit.

Here is a complete
ORLAN EVA Space Suit.

    Note the back pack style life support system. In essence, the cooling undergarment acts as a type of active refrigeration system which insulates the cosmonaut from extreme temperatures.
